Good Afternoon Skiers and Riders!
There are no Monday blues at Okemo. Well, unless you count the bluebird sky today! With sunshine and moderate winter temperatures, we enjoyed soft, carvable snow on the most open terrain in Vermont!
While we may be soaking up the sun and great temps, last night our Mountain Ops crew took advantage of the dip in the temperatures to make snow on seven trails! As we look ahead, the Mountain Ops team expects to head back out on Thursday night, keeping our snowmaking active into March! The flip of the calendar page does not keep our team from taking the opportunity to maintain the most open terrain in Vermont!
Tomorrow, 12 lifts will turn from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with 106 trails and 612 skiable acres. The forecast for tomorrow is calling for partly cloudy skies with continued moderate winter temps in the high 30s to low 40s.
Lift access prices for tomorrow will be $90 for adults, $79 for young adults and seniors, and $68 for juniors and super seniors. Half day rates are $68 for adults, $60 for young adults and seniors, and $52 for juniors and super seniors.
Remember, every Tuesday lift access is only $59 for residents of all ages from Pennsylvania and New York! Proof of residency is required.
The Okemo Valley Nordic Center will be open today and tomorrow from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with 3 km of Nordic trails and 5 km of snowshoe trails! If you’re looking to have some fun off the hill, we also have our Ice House at Jackson Gore open from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. today and tomorrow with helmet and skate rentals available at the rink. Our Timber Ripper Mountain Coaster and Snow Tubing lanes at Jackson Gore are operating from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. today.
Happy skiing and riding and see you on the slopes!
